Event Details

Cyrog Ent and  University of Dundee invites you to this outreach

Context: The world is at a crossroad with the convergence of several crises: catastrophic climate change, rapid ecosystem and biodiversity decline, land degradation on a massive scale, and increasing economic inequality in spite of a reduction in extreme poverty. Despite bold global commitments, and some successes, progress on all of these issues have been too little and too slow. As the implications of climate change become more mainstream knowledge, and global commitments such as the Paris Agreement establish opportunities for states and non-state actors to contribute to climate change adaptation and mitigation, the need for action at different levels especially national cannot be overemphasized. Also, governed by the sustainable development goals, sustainability and its developments that dates back to the eighteen Century, has metamorphosed under various movements as an attempt to meet these complex challenges in the world to be socially responsive, economically viable and environmentally friendly. Climate change extremes and issues which are intricately linked to other world challenges are
increasing globally leading us to an unsustainable trajectory. The world is also recovering from the endemic Pandemic a hindsight risk that hit the economy negatively. This project aims at engaging and exploring different futures that would allow people to take control of their livelihood whilst also looking to see if the pillars of the sustainable development goals are still working or if the scope of these pillars need to be expanded. These futures intend to be created but not limited around objectives decarbonisation and education which touch upon SDG goals 4, 7,8 and 13

What can we learn from these discussants? Let us explore these futures.
